The Male Room - #39 Make Flowers Masculine

OK so here's a challenge - flowers on a male card. The Male Room really likes to keep everyone on their toes and searching out ideas and creativity!

http://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2016/07/challenge-39.html

So having scratched my head for a while I came up with this:


I think the two DT cards from the buttons challenge - here - that were jacket shaped inspired me and I remembered gents wear buttonholes with a wedding suit.


And although it wasn't planned - or maybe I should pretend it was totally intentional - I'm really loving the ribbed effect on this piece of black card I found hiding in my stash.

Supplies:
Paper: Lawn Fawn, Beachside
Punches: Martha Stewart

How are you feeling about using flowers on a male themed card? I'm hoping to find out when I see your cards popping up in The Male Room gallery - it will definitely be a very different sort of gallery to our normal won't it?

Huge thanks for visiting today, I'm always really pleased to have your company.  And keep crafting!
